Fort Campbell, KY – Change occurs constantly in the Army. Units receive a steady stream of new Soldiers to replace Soldiers who leave for new assignments, retire or move on for a variety of other reasons.
Equipment and uniforms change over time. Policies, procedures and tactics are also constantly evolving. Units activate and inactivate. The Army is always changing.
